ESPN Announces 2010 BracketBuster Matchups

New, 1 comment

You know what would be a clever Halloween costume? A BracketBuster. I don't really know what the outfit would entail, but it would be a blast to confuse the hell out of a group of clueless chicks. Blank stares make me laugh.

On a related subject, ESPN announced the match-ups for 11 games between top mid-major squads from around the country.  The slate of games, to be played on February 19-20, is an exceptional initiative and it seems like everyone is a fan of the opportunity heighten the exposure of top teams playing in one- and two- bid leagues. Many of the usual suspects (Butler, Northern Iowa, Siena) will be featured, but I invite you to take a look at College of Charleston, Northeastern, Old Dominion and William & Mary too. All four teams received varying levels of national attention this season, and might just be... sorry for being lame...busting the casual fan's bracket come March.
